About

This gorgeous haute couture cocktail dress was designed by Balenciaga for his Spanish label Eisa. Constructed in vivid magenta pink silk gazaar, the dress features a round neckline, scooping lower to the back, and a ruffle around the hem, adding a touch of fun and structure to the silhouette. The epitome of chic, the bright shade makes this dress perfect for summer parties.

Cristobal Balenciaga was the man known as ‘the couturier’s couturier’ and referred to by Coco Chanel as simply ‘the Master’. His understanding of fabric, shape and the construction of clothing was without equal and this beautiful dress is a superb example of Balenciaga when it was Signor Balenciaga himself at the helm.
